Busy day at the ranch yesterday. We started with turning both compost piles and mixing in more straw. The recent heavy rains had made the piles too wet and stinky, attracting...flies.
We still had a variety of young plants that needed to get into flats. We transplanted thyme, flax, bergamot, sorel and stinging nettle.
The kids got to enjoy watching the lady bugs "humping" as they said, as well as eat some delicious celery.
Our little ceremony of gratitude to the Earth.
